I'm back from my travels, and managed to fit in three more films in the past week. I barely watched anything the past month, though, so now that I'm back home I intend to focus on films for this and the <400 poll, so I will hopefully get through all the films I'd earmarked for this.
was odd. Turns out the copy I have is indeed the original Danish version, though much of the dialogue is in English since there are two Dutch guys they interact with. It gets a score of 1 from me
; I don't care for these types of films that glamourize crime and violence.
I felt like there was so much more wrong with the film, the characters, their actions, their motivations, but perhaps it's just because they inhabit a world so far removed from any that I've known (or care to know). The lead girl seemed so incredibly dull and dimwitted. Didn't recognize her from Winter Brothers (I think she played one of the wives/girlfriends), but here I couldn't stand her.
is not my type of film. It gets a score of 0 from me
. I guess if you like arthouse films where nothing happens, this is the type for you, and if people want to put it in the arthouse category, I have no issue with that. I would definitely object to it being in any other slate.
I simply fail to find anything interesting about blurry naked bodies being shown on screen while a recording of some guy's sleeptalking plays. This film put me to sleep (though to be fair I was also really jetlagged).
was okay. I'm not sure if I like it or not, and it sits at a 1.5 from me right now
(but I might be convinced to upgrade it to a 2). Could go either way the more I think about it. It was pretty, and it held my interest at the start, but then it kind of meandered, and the last 15-20 minutes felt really muddled. I'm sorry beavis, I'm not trying to actively dislike your nominations... just seems that we have very different taste in newer films.
I need 7 more films to hit 3 for each other programmer. We'll see how close I get.
3 and 2 will be
while 1 and 0 will be
Italics will be films I plan to see
, but of course that may change if something else comes available or is nominated.
